South Texas Swing

by Adolph Hofner
 
Adolph Hofner's South Texas Swing is 26 tracks and 78 minutes of music by one of the Texas country swing greats, with most cuts dating from the late '30s and early '40s, although there are a few stragglers from the late '40s and early '50s. This could be heartily recommended to Bob Wills and Milton Brown

Overview

Adolph Hofner's South Texas Swing is 26 tracks and 78 minutes of music by one of the Texas country swing greats, with most cuts dating from the late '30s and early '40s, although there are a few stragglers from the late '40s and early '50s. This could be heartily recommended to Bob Wills and Milton Brown fans, with the proviso that Hofner favored a slightly more pop-oriented sound; the inclusion of some polka-oriented material betrays his Czech ancestry. His vocal sound is supremely relaxed and easygoing; it sounds like the stage would have to catch fire before his voice betrayed any hint of nervousness. Interesting oddities are five tracks sung in Czech; other than their presentation in a foreign language, they sound quite in line with his usual material.
